Arizona Competency-Based Guidance. Program Handbook.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix. Vocational Technological Div.
This program development handbook is part of a statewide effort to develop and implement an Arizona Competency Based Guidance Program model for Arizona school districts. Part 1, the Overview, includes an introduction to competency-based guidance, followed by the mission statement of the Arizona Department of Education regarding guidance and the philosophy of the Arizona Competency Based Guidance Program. It also surveys the conceptual model of guidance, the goals for student competency, the management system, and evaluation procedures, and it concludes with a glossary of guidance-related terms. Part 2 outlines desired student competencies at elementary, middle/junior high, and high school levels in four domains: educational, career development, personal/social, and leisure. Part 3 lists the 12 elements of a competency-based guidance program: mission statement, philosophy, conceptual model, goals, competencies, management system, results agreement, needs assessment, results plans, student monitoring, advisory council, and master calendar of events. Appended are samples of guidance goals, the National Career Development Guidelines for competencies and indicators from kindergarten through adult levels, copied articles on conducting needs assessments, and a sample educational and career planning folder for middle/junior high school students.
